Rate of return of capital invested in building improvements. Is segregated from land investments and provides a method of separating property income streams between improvement and land investments. Normally the yield is stated as an annual rate of profit per dollar of investment. Three factors are necessary in order to correctly compute the building capitalization rate: (1) The amount of the investment. (2) The size and duration of the income stream. (3) The eventual resale proceeds.
